The Sky is No Longer the Limit
As a young boy, I was always told, “The sky is the limit,”
but there was no one there to teach me to fly.
“The world is your oyster,” They said,
But I was never taught to swim nor to dive,
deep for my dreams.
"You can do and be anything
you set your mind to,” but they controlled my thoughts
by showing me what the world deemed
successful; keeping my creativity and voice muted.
The instruction manual for life has been xeroxed and handed down
generation after generation
written in all different languages, but always translated
into the same verbiage: Get good grades in high school, get into a good college,
get a high-paying job, have a family, retire, then kick the bucket.
Sound familiar? Oh! I hope at some point you had a moment
to enjoy the journey and cross off a few things on your bucket list
before you kicked it, that's even if you had time to make a list.
Ponder this for a minute...What if that instruction manual was lost or thrown away?
And now you're living your life by the script
of your own heart, no longer chained to expectations or binding rules.
Would you have a different view
of what success means?
Would you stop being afraid of what others might think
and take more chances?
